Chavez says all candidates must accept election result  CARACAS: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called on all political parties Saturday to accept the result of Sunday's presidential election, saying the outcome "won't be the end of the world for anybody."   Chavez, 58, held a news conference after talks with the head of a South American delegation of election experts, Carlos Alvarez, who called on all sides to accept the results published by the National Electoral Council.   "I call on all political actors from the left, right and center for us to prepare emotionally to accept tomorrow's result. It won't be the end of the world for anybody," Chavez said.
